Ah for us you're quite right, we have never looked so good.

Just good to compare to the most recent best starts other teams have made. Chelsea's best effort was 05/06 season

First 22 games

W 20
D 1
L 1
That Chelsea team were a machine. I see a lot of that in us this season. Not necessarily blowing teams away every week, but relentlessly consistent and refusing to ever be beaten.

34 league games undefeated. 146 points out of a possible 165 since the start of last season. 25 wins and one draw from our last 26 league games.

West Ham away is still to be re-scheduled but the next 6 represents the toughest run of the season. 12 from 18 would be a good return for that sequence given the opponents and the fixture congestion and should mean we retain a healthy lead. After that things look easier until we play City again in April.

Depending on when the WHU game is rescheduled for it may be match week 30 (the Ev away) before we can improve on last year’s results in the league. We could just score more to improve our GD though.
Anyway that graph makes for very nice viewing.

The last season we managed to win every PL game in December conceding only 3 goals.If we beat Wolves on Sunday we are going to repeat this feat which is unreal.I dont remember the last time a team won all of their games in December in back to back seasons.

Following the 1-0 win against Wolves, we now have in the last 38 prem games:

32 Wins, 5 Draws and 1 Loss - which is 101 points.

This also includes the draw against Man Utd where VAR robbed us 2 points by not giving the foul on Origi, and our only loss was the ball not crossing the line by 11mm at Man City, and their winning goal going in off the post - whereas the post saved them.

So could/should be 104 points. Crazy!

50 league games unbeaten at Anfield. We lost just one league game in 2019 and that was on January 3rd. If we avoid defeat against Sheffield United on Thursday we'll have gone a full calendar year unbeaten in the league (37 games).

55 points in the first half of the season. We had 51 at the same stage last season and were 7 ahead of Manchester City. This season we are 14 points clear of them with a game in hand. A maximum of 42 points are required for us to win the title assuming Leicester win all their remaining games. 41 points to definitely finish ahead of City. We got 46 points in the second half of last season. City got 54.

42 points from 14 games would see us win the league with the same points total we finished in 2nd place with last season

The fixtures for the second half of the season look a bit tougher than the first half - away games against Spurs, Wolves, Everton and City in particular. United and Chelsea games are always a bit tricky too so no guarantees of wins.
I think we will drop 10-12 points from the 19 games ... 45 to 47 points .... so 100 to 102 for the season!

The general pattern of our seasons under JK is that we tend to peak in December then suffer a drop-off in Jan/Feb. We always seem to be hit by a rash of injuries for that period and it's when the squad is at its most stretched. This current sequence of games up until Wolves on the 23rd Jan is the hardest we have all season. If we can get through that with our lead relatively intact we will be OK. I am guessing that most, possibly all, of our current injured players (Fabinho, etc) might be available again after the winter break in Feb. From then on our games look much easier on paper.

The last season we dropped 11 points in the second half and unfortunately this turned out to be fatal for our title hopes.Fortunately this season the consistency of Man City is gone so we can afford few bad results.Right now 12 wins and 6 draws are winning us the league but this will change once Man City and Leicester drop more points.

Thank God for the sanity of this thread compared to the MediacitySalford stats deptartment's stupidity. Beebeker Sport has managed to clutch at one final straw this year to keep the illusion going for a couple of days.....

So we can afford to drop 12 points just to put it simply and with a game in hand. :) (y)

Depends on whether one of those wins is against the second placed team (City presumably, but far from certain) It will give us even more wriggle room with draws, if they're second and we beat them.
I don't see Leicester as a threat.

I maintain that expected goals is the single worst statistic in football today. In fact just the worst thing about football.
